Try this to install headless chrome on Amazon Linux 2 for aarch64

  1. Installing the dependencies: sudo yum install -y glibc-devel fontconfig libX11 libXcomposite libXcursor libXdamage libXext libXi libXtst cups-libs libXScrnSaver libXrandr GConf2 alsa-lib atk gtk3 ipa-gothic-fonts liberation-fonts

  2. Download the Chromium browser: wget https://commondatastorage.googleapis.com/chromium-browser-snapshots/Linux_Arm64/864410/chrome-linux.zip

  3. Start Chromium in headless mode: ./chrome-linux/chrome --headless --disable-gpu --remote-debugging-port=9222 <<WebURL that you want to visit in headless mode>>

This should allow to visit the URL in headless mode
